Lee County -- Federal Officials physically seized the five homes involved the break up of a large marijuana operation in Lee and Terrell Counties earlier this year.
A trailer full of antiques and furniture belonging to Frank Spring was seized by Lee County Sheriff's Investigators yesterday from a house in Calloway Lakes. It's part of a federal court order to seize all assets that may have been purchased with money from the pot operation.
If the government wins that civil suit, Lee County will get the majority of the money from a public auction.
"That goes to drug enforcement in this county and that's why Sheriff Breeden is so adamant about doing asset forfeiture whenever possible, because this provides the means for us to get equipment to do drug interdiction in this county without it costing the taxpayers any money," Col. Duane Sapp of the Lee County Sheriff's Office.
Investigators also seized a Harley Davidson motorcycle Frank Spring had at another location. Investigators fear Spring may have been trying to hide belongings so they couldn't be seized.
People living in the homes have been given a deadline for when the must move out.
